I Heart Spinning...

Since my wheels are "occupied" and I'm missing my drop spindle, I decided to tackle the Spindlers' February challenge on Ravelry which is called "Mardi Gras".

It only took me two days (that's what happens when work is very slow). I carded the mini-batts yesterday, drafted it to maintain the color sequences and then spun it yesterday and today. Tonight while watching "Something About Mary" on cable, I plied it (and I am totally out of practice there) and here it is!

Not much yardage though. Only 68 yards.

So pretty! Knit up a little soap holder! Love the colors, can't believe you made this with a drop spindle - nicely done.

Jen, I was just wondering what to make with it! Thanks for the suggestion of a soap holder!

I'll knit one up as soon as the skein's dry!
